What i am proposing is using manifest to generate plist when _user_ installs
a port. Not when porter writes a port, because porter surely can write tiny
script for parsing install_manifest.txt and producing lines for pkg-plist.
But this still leaves him with burden of manually checking for plist
correctness, which may be painful and error-prone in cases described in my
first post.

Ideally, i want any plist to be generated automatically.
